I have VS 2015 professional and trying to run the hello world app on pi 3 using windows 10. I followed all steps from https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/iot/win10/samples/python but I am getting errors as shown below.

I referred to one such question https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/c08c6a51-e649-47b8-8058-2830b1532681/problem-deploying-python-apps-on-raspberry-pi?forum=WindowsIoT, but mine is little different. I dont know where is the issue.

Below is the ouput

Some where visual studio tries and look into the U drive and it is not present in my computer. Can you point me where can i change it.

I believe the U drive is the storage on the Raspberry Pi itself, which Visual Studio maps when it deploys to the remote machine.

I'm also not sure what error you mean - the penultimate line in your pasted output says:

Hello World from IOT

.. which is the desired output. So it worked ?

The rest of the output just seems to be the usual info when starting a debug build. There are a bunch of warning about not being able to locate .pdb files, but I don't believe that will stop the app from running, you just wont be able to inspect code if you set breakpoints.

I have created a three part series on the Raspberry Pi 3 and Windows 10 IoT core on my tiny little blog. I hope this helps.

Install:

http://iilabscloud.com/install-windows-10-iot-core-raspberry-pi-3/

Deploy:

http://iilabscloud.com/deploy-uwp-app-onto-raspberry-pi-3/

There is a second article in the series but I don't have enough reputation points on this forum to post more than two article links.

I am working on using the Pi along with Azure for sustainable living and farming projects. Good luck.

  • Thanks Daniel, you have written very nice step by step blog to get started with pi3 and windows iot but I have a very specific issue with deployment of python code on pi3. – Sagar Jha Jul 17 '16 at 17:31
